Name of creator
Oscar Fagerberg began building 588 Ridgegrove Avenue (now a Saanich heritage property) for himself and wife Bertha (nee Nelson) in 1920 but he died the following year. Son George completed the house after his father's death. Daughters Clara and Elsa never married and lived in the house for most of their lives. George married Myrtle Lindquist in 1935, and he built a house for them on what is now Daffodil Lane. Myrtle's family lived in Gordon Head for many years, and her brother was named Gordon after the area. George and Myrtle never had any children. The house that George built was never finished upstairs because that was to have been rooms for the children that they did not have.
